Pepper Plant (Day 43)
I'm trying out a technique used by mountain people documented in the first of the Foxfire book series. It involves figuring out the prominent constellation, factoring in moon phase, and boiling down a chapter of interviews from Foxfire 1. I just read the chapter, and the time to throw these puppies into the ground is coming in a couple days! We'll see how things go.
The shoot on the left with the deepest green color is the first plant to sprout up (Day 4). It hasn't grown as much as the others and has really really thick green leaves that almost look fake. Any farmers out there know why this is happening?
